Xactimate Roof Estimates


Please Read This as It Pertains to a Change in How We Will Do Business in the Aftermath of the Hurricanes

Due to the recent Hurricanes we are asking all clients to order their own EagleView Reports direct from EagleView, if you need one.  Visit www.EagleView.com to place an order.
We have to streamline our operation to help more people.
Another item that we will have to discontinue temporarily, is binding the estimate and EagleView together.
Any estimate with major damage that includes framing or windows will become a 1% fee based estimate.
Flat rates for roofs and siding will not apply if those items are part of the submittal.
We will return to normal after this storm effort.  Thanks for your understanding

Please read every thing on this page and click                         the blue button to begin a new estimate.

If you already have an adjusters estimate, please     upload it and don't repeat of the any information on it.

What to expect?
Your estimate will include your company information, all of the items you indicated with recent pricing for the correct zip code. We will also include your logo, photos, and specialty bid items, if provided. You can furnish your own EagleView or other aerial report if you wish.. Information must be submitted on one of our forms. If you have an adjuster's estimate, be sure to send it also. Don't bother repeating information already on the adjuster's estimate.

You will receive your estimate as a PDF attachment by return email usually within 1-2 days, except Sundays and holidays. There are times, however, when an order can take up to 3 days, due to volume.  
We will also include up to 12 non-roof items (we consider a roof estimate to include when needed, gutter, fascia and soffit. This can include an additional garage, shed, barn, fence, siding, paint, window reglazing, interior rooms drywall and paint repair. If you need more, we offer all types of services at reasonable prices. Bigger estimates take longer to write, as a rule. All estimates are written from scratch by seasoned professionals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to do to submit my information?

We offer 2 methods:
Method 1:   If you have the roof measured and calculated already, then proceed to our Online Form or the Printable Checklist and fill in the information.  Send the information (either submit the Online Form with the push of a button, or fax or email the Printable Checklist).  Pay for the estimate, in this case only $49.  Wait no more than 24 hours and receive the completed estimate.  This method may also be used if you have any aerial estimate already.  Please send that also, by email or fax.  We will create a combo estimate with your aerial report.
Method 2:
If you don’t have the measurements and calculations, then you need to order the Xactimate estimate with EagleView.  Use the same forms as in Step 1, fill in all the information that you can.  The size of the roof determines the price of the estimate.    We will use the EagleView for the missing information.  EagleView adds a day or two to the process and starts when payment is received.
*An adjuster’s estimate can also be helpful in completing your estimate.  Please email or fax that also.

Why should I use Xactimate estimates?  

Xactimate is the source that most insurance companies use for pricing. Bidding is no longer guesswork. Insurance companies, who use Xactimate, aren't interested in any other pricing unless it’s lower.  Xactimate even helps you to stop underbidding. The future is here for the industry, you might as well join in.  Xactimate estimation is your tool also.

When is the best time to present the Xactimate estimate to the Homeowner and Insurance company?
There is no doubt that the answer is, the earlier the better.  Negotiate the job while you have the best chance.  Show the homeowner and the adjuster what you believe is the correct approach to making things right for the homeowner.  When done after the fact, you might gain nothing, while you've already spent the extra money.  Best to establish the budget before you begin the job.  You can waste a lot of time and effort demanding money for work that was never agreed on.  Also, before the job is done, the homeowner is more willing to help.

Will the report look like we prepared it in-house?
Yes, we are like your ghost writers. It is your estimate, you are the estimator.  Our identification does not
show on your estimate.  But, if you prefer, we will provide an estimate under our heading and logo.

How can you possibly know the prices for our area?
We don’t. But Xactimate does. Xactimate is updated monthly for all zip codes in the United States and Canada.
Your report will be done with the most recent pricelist for your zip code.

What if we need an item that isn’t on the form?
Add information in the comments box or send us an email, fax or call us. Our form contains the most
frequently needed items, but many more are available. Just convey what you need and we will include it.

What about Metal, Built-up, Rubber, Slate, Copper, Aluminum, and other unusual roofs? 
Custom reports are no problem. Tell us what the material is (including trim). We'll figure it out for you.  We do commercial and residential.

Will you include my company logo on the Xactimate report?
Yes, gladly.  Please email your logo in any format and we will include it at no extra cost.  You only need to send your logo once.
We will save it and use it on all of your future reports. No logo? No problem! Select from 8 choices on the online form.

How long is your turn around time?
Our commitment is to return your finished report within 24 hours workdays.  Estimates with Eagle View allow 1-2 days more.  Sundays are not considered work days.

What if there are errors on my Xactimate report?
We will immediately respond with a corrected report.

Is the Xactimate report any guarantee of agreement from the adjusters?
No. Although Xactimate is accepted and used by most insurance companies, interpretations vary, as do some insurance companies directives to their adjusters. Some adjusters are not allowed to give on some items, even though others are.  EagleView measurements and Xactimate pricing are the best way possible to establish your professionalism and credibility.

Can I request Overhead and Profit settings of a particular amount?
Absolutely, yes. Our reports can include 10% Overhead and 10% Profit. You can request it on our forms.

What are your roof prices?
Each roof report costs $49.00.  A full siding estimate is $59.  This includes revisions if needed. We charge a reasonable extra charge to add the Premium EagleView Roof Report and/or the EagleView Wall Report to your estimates.
These enhanced estimates are highly recommended and desirable.  See Pricing for details. 

Can we just send you an EagleView™ or some other aerial estimate?
Sure. In fact we will do any of these type for only $49. These aerial services are helpful for much information.   If you already have an aerial estimate or calculations of your own, we will proceed. Bear in mind that aerial estimates don’t show what type of roof material it is.  Nor do they show how many layers are existing, for instance.  A lot of information needs to be added.  Detail is where you make (or lose) lots of money. Our form completes the needed information and starts you on your way to an impressive presentation.
